Og-winners by symonxThe winners of @MagiciansSYFY Fan Art Contest have been chosen! See who the judges picked and browse the other entries. #TheMagicians #ItsAFanThing

Create artwork celebrating The Magicians in anticipation of the Season 4 premiere!

Have you ever wished magic were real?Graduate student Quentin Coldwater did, and his wish came true. But that's just the beginning of the story.

__

SYFY's The Magicians follows a group of young magicians, who perfected their craft at Brakebills University, as they discover the consequences and dangers of the mythical world they've become a part of.

The first three seasons have been a roller coaster of triumphs, failures, and emotions with more to come in Season 4. To honor the next chapter in this grand saga, SYFY invites you to create artwork that celebrates the story up to this point. Choose anything from beloved characters, key magical moments, and mystical objects or locations.

First, Second, and Third Place winners will be chosen by a panel of judges including The Magicians Executive Producers and Co-Creators, Sera Gamble and John McNamara.

I just looked at the prizes listed on the contest page and there must be an error with what they have posted for the 2nd prize. It is listed as $4000 USD and with a 6-month membership, but I believe it is supposed to be $2000 because they listed an ARV of all prizes totaling $7990. Or maybe the issue is with the ARV total.

It's been corrected.  They made the edit to the webpage and now after refreshing my cache in the browser, it appears correctly as $2,000.

A question in case any staff or volunteers/etc are still looking. The rules say that a potential winner needs to be able to receive mail and respond to it, and if it's returned as undeliverable or missed the prize is forfeit. I can't find ANYWHERE in my Deviantart information where physical address information is stored. Where is it? Will I be notified on DA first and asked for an address privately? I want to make sure that's sorted out before that could potentially be an issue.

i was just approached by someone telling me  that, apparently, it is against the rules to upload your contest entry on other social media sites. 
i can't find anything like that in the rules, but my first language is not english either so i might have misread/misunderstood something.
and it's better to be safe than sorry so: does anyone know for sure?

You can share your contest entry on other social media sites (including submitting on DA groups) after you've submited your entry on DA.
The rule stated is that you can't submit your previously created works (that may have also been licensed, sold, etc) as a contest entry.

Based on your feedback, we’ve reduced thumbnails 75% of their original size. We’re also working on improvements to Feedback — an area where many deviants feel that everything is too big — and exploring how we can reduce the layout here as well.Change LogFixed issue where the feedback dropdown would appear really tall.Added anchor links on Profile, so that clicking "Show All" on the Watchers and Groups section would bring you to the proper section on the About page. Fixed issue where, after removing comments from your profile, you would not be able to add them back. Fixed issue where “edit” button no longer appeared on your comments.Fixed issue where last decimal place of price was cut off ($12.34 would show $12.3) until you clicked through to see the full price.Performance improvements to browse, search, and gallery pages.In addition to these updates and bug fixes are smaller improvements we’ve made as we continue to develop larger features in Eclipse.

Devious Dreams: The winners!The Devious Dreams campaign launched in March 2019 as a chance for DeviantArt to grant artists the tools they need to make their creative evolution a reality. With over $20,000 in prizing available to make dreams come true, thousands of deviants shared a wide range of creative and heartfelt dreams for their artistic future. We particularly enjoyed seeing the support everyone put forward for each others’ creative goals. Now that the campaign has come to a close, it is our honor to announce the recipients of Devious Dreams grants—a collective of artists from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of creative ideas. Some of these deviants requested drawing tablets so they can create every day. Others asked for traditional art supplies, or photography tools to more efficiently create and share their art. Some asked for crafting supplies like sculpting or sewing materials. The projects each artist put forward were varied and inspired, and it’s our pleasure to help bring these dreams to life.Dream Recipients!

Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!

Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.

Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.

This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse

As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.

Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.

Keep it Coming!

In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.

We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:
